According to Ware, it appeared as though the perpetrator was trying to push the girl through a window of an abandoned house. But as Ware moved toward the man, he put the child down – and then attempted to flee the scene.
But Ware was not going to let the alleged kidnapper get away again. “I caught him in the street and kicked him in the groin when I had him,” Ware said, according to The Washington Post. “He ran across the street, he hit the grass and that’s when I tackled him.”
